Thank you very much for your excellent instruction!

It works but you are commenting the name of the downloaded file
instead of
zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll"
;zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.9.7-7.4-vc15-x86_64.dll"
i used

;zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll"
zend_extension = "c:\xampp64\php\ext\php_xdebug-2.9.7-7.4-vc15-x86_64.dll"

For Xdebug version 3 use this config in php.ini

[XDebug]
zend_extension = "c:\xampp\php\ext\php_xdebug.dll"
xdebug.mode=debug
xdebug.start_with_request=yes
xdebug.profiler_append = 0
;xdebug.profiler_output_dir = "c:\xampp\tmp"
;xdebug.profiler_output_name = "cachegrind.out.%t-%s"
xdebug.remote_handler = "dbgp"
xdebug.client_host = "127.0.0.1"
xdebug.log = "c:\xampp\tmp\xdebug.txt"
xdebug.client_port = 9000
xdebug.output_dir = "c:\xampp\tmp"
;36000 = 10h
xdebug.remote_cookie_expire_time = 36000
